Newell Coach congratulates Matt Kenseth on his victory in Sunday’s rain-shortened Daytona 500.
A Newell owner since 2004, Matt and his wife Katie will be celebrating his win later this month with the delivery of their brand-new quad-slide Newell.
Kenseth started from the rear of the field Sunday in a backup car after his primary No. 17 Ford was wrecked in Thursday’s qualifying race.
He took the lead on the final lap of green-flag racing and held the top spot under caution until NASCAR red-flagged the race because of rain after 152 of a scheduled 200 laps.
“It’s going to be really wet out here because I’m crying like a baby,” Kenseth said after getting the word he was the winner of the 51st Daytona 500. “We’ve had some really fast cars on the speedways in the past, and I’ve just never been able to figure out how to do the right thing, and [Sunday] we were able to make the right moves.”
